IMPORTANT NOTE:

If you are upgrading from version 4.3, you will need to take an aditional step in order to upgrade to this version because it is a major upgrade. We have written some notes about this in the wiki: wiki but in a nutshell, you need to first reset your anonabox back to factory defaults before you do the upgrade. Especially if you have been using it for a while. This only applies to versi on 4.3, and only if you have been using it for a while. Before you upgrade to 4.4, log into the admin interface and click on the system dropdown and select backup/flash firmware, and on that page click the button that says reset. You will be prompted one ti me to confirm the change. After that your device will reboot on its own, and after it is done rebooting it will be ready to upgr ade to 4.4 or higher using the regular steps below.


How to Install New Firmware

Download the file to your computer and save it somewhere where it is easily accessible, like your desktop.

Connect to the Anonabox User Interface (Step 2 in the User Manual)

Use the ‘System’ tab and select ‘Backup/Flash Firmware’.

Step 1

You may want to create a back up of your current settings. You can do so by clicking ‘Download Backup.’

Begin by clicking the ‘Perform Reset’ Button. This will erase any additional files being stored on the device and make sure you have sufficient file space for the new firmware.

Reconnect and enter the interface and navigate back to the ‘Backup/Flash Firmware’ section under the ‘System’ tab as outlined previously.

To update:

De-select the box next to ‘keep settings’

Click ‘choose file’ and find the firmware file (anonabox_model_firmware_version.bin) that you have downloaded onto your computer.

Once you have chosen that file click ‘flash image…’

Update may take several minutes, but when completed, use your device as normal.

You may trash the downloaded file once the update is completed.
